Dredge

Dredging plays a vital role in the marine industry, allowing cargo and passenger ships to travel through unobstructed waterways. It’s a tough job, and dredging vessels need engines that deliver reliable performance, high fuel efficiency and best-in-class power.

Caterpillar provides the industry’s widest range of engines, generator sets and power solutions. Backed by decades of experience and innovation, Cat® engines set the standard for quality, performance and reliability. And all our engines are backed by the Cat dealer network for unparalleled support any time, anywhere in the world.

We offer industry-leading power ranges and tested, application-specific products to make sure you get the optimal power for your job. Our reserve power means unloaded vessels can travel faster, and the power curve of our engines compensates for hull fouling and propeller wear to deliver peak performance.
